Hello Polli, Thank you for your amazing review!! Our staff is simply delighted to hear your positive comments! Our goal is to give our guests superior service as a team and it’s motivating to see that we accomplished this during your stay-so thank you for sharing your experience here on TripAdvisor! We are glad to hear that our staff assisted you well while you were here. We are very proud have staff members like Jesse, our front desk agent, and Jose, our maintenance tech, who are both genuinely helpful people. It’s wonderful when guests notice our efforts. Thank you for mentioning the rooms and amenities. The kitchen suites, which have apartment sized refrigerator and stove and is stocked with cooking and dining supplies, are great for longer stays, such as yours. We try to make the rooms warm and welcoming, as well as spotless…our room attendants do an amazing job at keeping our rooms looking their best, along with our maintenance tech, of course. I have to agree with you on how beautiful the landscaping is. Some have said that we are like a little oasis here on the Boulevard. If you have a chance to relax in our pool area, I recommend it! We are happy that your daughter was able to have her fur baby stay here with her. We know that pets are important and are glad to be a pet-friendly property. Our deluxe continental breakfast and parking are complimentary to all of our guests. It’s nice to hear that you appreciated the amenities we provide. We truly appreciate that you took time out of your busy schedule to review us! We hope to serve you again in the future! * Book Direct with Us - For the Best Service, Selection, and Value! * Yours in Hospitality, Michelle C.| Customer Care
